    No results found.

    This policy brief suggests that agricultural cooperative and cooperation group operation of small to medium-size irrigation services in Vietnam’s An Giang province will further modernize the agricultural sector and increase production. The existing irrigation infrastructure cannot meet farmer demand, which results in higher production costs and underutilized services. Enabling cooperatives to manage small to medium-size irrigation systems, while continuing government control of large systems, is therefore an important strategy for optimizing irrigation system benefits and improving poor farmers’ livelihoods.
